I'm not aware of any documentation of incremental mode's internals.
Since I still have an unimplemented idea for improving it, maybe I
should revisit this if I have time in a few years from now (I doubt I'd
have time for this sooner than that), and give a talk on it at that
point (as I'd need to recall a few things anyway) - although it'd be a
bit weird to do that on something that is already 20 years old, except
for those improvements.
